{ Garry knew that he is a winnner of Linares even he loses (the first
tie-break was more wins with black). As well as, Garry knew that this game
is the last in his professional chess career- Garry announced his
retirement from professional chess right after the end of this game ( this
decision was not any spontaneous,and the loss of this game didn’t cause to
that). }

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 e5 { Garry chooses a solid variation for the
last round game. } 4. Bc4 d6 5. d3 Be7 6. O-O { Garry prepared 6.Nd2 line
with white for Linares 2005 and was very close to beat Leko in round 8 of
the same tournament. } (6. Nd2 { Roiz in CBM 106 } 6… Bg5 7. h4 Bxd2+ 8.
Bxd2 Nf6 { That position was tested many times on the highest level. } 9.
O-O { A latest attempt to fight for the opening advantage which connected
with an idea of f2-f4. } 9… Be6 10. f4 $146 { White allows black to
exchange the bishops,as it will make the Pd6 very vulnerable. } 10… Bxc4
11. dxc4 h5 $1 { A typical defensive idea in such a positions. Black
exploits a drawback of 7.h4 and gets a nice square for his knight. } 12. f5
Ng4 13. f6 { 1/2-1/2 Kasparov,G-Leko,P/Linares 2005/CBM 106_01/[Roiz] (31)
White chooses a very energetical continuation. He tries to use some
vulnerablity of Ke8. }) 6… Nf6 7. Nh4 { A real surprise! This move has
never been tested before. Out of other seven tries, the 7.Ng5 is a most
popular and promises white a good play. In Dortmund 2004 Vishy tested
7.Bg5, and managed to achieve some opening advantage, but for some reason
this line hasn’t gained any popularity. The main idea of Topalov was to
keep Garry out of book and his analysis, and his strategy worked
successfully in this game. } (7. Ng5 O-O 8. f4 Bg4 { After the game
Kramnik,V-Grischuk,A/Wijk aaz Zee 2003 [Roiz] that move became very
popular. } 9. Qe1 exf4 { That helps white to complete his development, but
there is nothing better. } 10. Bxf4 Nd4 11. Qd2 h6 $146 { This is a dubious
novelty in my opinion, as after h7-h6 white gets excellent attacking
possibilities, using the open ”g” file (after an exchange on f3). } 12.
Nf3 Bxf3 $5 { Black tries a new concept in this common position. He keeps
his knight in the centre, trying to start a quick counterplay by b7-b5. } (

initiative is more dangerous than in Kramnik-Grischuk, as Qd8-d7 is a quite
useful move for black. At the same time a2-a4 is obviously not white’s best
attacking continuation. }) 13. gxf3 Qd7 14. Be3 b5 { There is no other way
of counterplay-otherwise black is just much worse. } 15. Bxd4 (15. Bd5 $5
